I'm Never Going to Disney Near Easter Again March 2013 TR Completed 1/3 NEW TR LINK!

Hi all,
Iíve gone back forth about doing a trip report for my past trip. I never finished my first trip report, I didnít have any readers. I debated during my trip about whether or not I wanted to a trip report and because of that I didnít take any food pictures, please forgive me . But I think Iím going to give trip reports another try.
Let me start with introductions.
Hi, Iím Emma and Iíll be your reporter. Iím currently a freshmen in college studying elementary and special education. My goal is to become an upper elementary school teacher (3rd-5th grade). I love to scrapbook so I have a lot of pictures, but not a lot with people in them for this trip. Iím super involved in a future teachers club on my campus, I actually just elected secretary . I also love to read especially trip reports (Queenofallthings, Fantasyland Mom, Disneyfreak508, Dugette, brookelizabeth and Disneyfreak616, If you haven't reader their's I recommend them) hang out with friends and movies/television. Thatís the basic stuff about meÖoh yeah and I consider Disney my biggest fandom. If you wanted to I would talk about Disney with you all night and all day. LOL. Now on to the more important stuff my Disney favorites.
Character: Stitch
Ride: Big Thunder, People mover, Spaceship Earth and American Adventure (Did I mention Iím a history nerd and itís my second major).
Princess: Tiana (Although Iíve never seen Princess and the Frog )
Movie: I donít I have too many. Although Iím super excited to go see Monster University.
Restaurant: Tonyís Town Square


DF: My traveling companion with my Disney Father but weíll call him DF. He currently is living down in Florida. He loves Disney, heís probably the reason for my Disney obsession.

There will also be a few guest appearances from DFís DGF, although I donít have any picture of her.
Okay what else did I want to mentionÖ
Who: Already mentioned
What: A Disney TripÖof course
When: My first college Spring Break which was the week of Easter and it was SUPER busy. I would not want to go down that close to a holiday again)
Where: Disney/ Old Key West
Why: Do I really need a reason?
So, please give my trip report a chance, I promise it will get better. I have stories and pictures to share. I will also be sharing my tweets from the trip. So, if you like to follow along Subscribe and let me know youíre here.
Bye.

We are going in 3 weeks and were talking about how lucky we are to live in FL and be able to easily go in off times like the end of April to escape the crowds!

The Days Leading Up to the Trip:
I just wanted to include a little bit of background information on the week leading up to the trip. The school week was a hectic week. I had something due or test every day. I was pretty stressed but the light at the end of my tunnel was going to my happy place . On Tuesday of that week I found out officially that I had been elected secretary of my Future Teachers Club . On Friday I officially turned 19! Yep I was going to be in Disney right around my birthday for the first time!

Because of the hectic week a school I did all my packing the week before but I had some last minute packing to do over the weekend (toothbrush, shampoo, etc&). And I spent some time with my friends back home. The night before I went to bed at around 10 PM but first I set my alarm and upload this picture to Instagram.



Day One March 25 Getting to the Airport

I woke up at 5:40 AM and got dressed quickly, brushed my teeth and waited for my Mom to get ready to drive me to the airport. We left the house at around 6 AM, and Im not a morning person but today I was because it was Disney Day!



We got to the airport around 6:30-7 oclock. The check-in line was long but I got through pretty quickly. I checked my luggage which thankfully was less than 50 pounds. I went through security pretty quickly and found my gate. While I was waiting for plane I noticed a lot of people in Disney clothes so I tweeted:
Being able to tell who going disney by what they're wearing at the airport #disneyswag #disneyfansunite

Soon enough we were boarding. I was flying Southwest and was put into the C boarding group. I was a little worried about getting a good seat but I ended up with an aisle seat in probably the 13th row so I was a happy camper. One thing I like about flying Southwest is their sense of humor. While we were boarding the flight attendants polite told us to hurry up. Which caused me to tweet:

"Sorry folks we don't mean to rush you but please hurry up"#flightattendant

Our flight left about 8 AM. During the flight I read an issue of Seventeen Magazine and watched Valentines Day. The flight felt so long and I think it got delayed somewhere along way but not too much. While we were flying our pilot told us to look out the right side window and we would see a good view of EPCOT. I didnt see it but apparently we could. He also told the people on the left hand side that if they looked to their right they could see the backs of the people who were looking at Disney World. I thought that as pretty funny so as soon as we landed I tweeted:

"If you look out the right side of the plane you'll see Disney world. If youre on the left you can see the backs of the people on the right" #pilot

I looked at my phone and we had landed right about 11:11, so I made wish for great Disney trip. JK I didnt need to make a wish I knew it would be great its a Disney Trip. LOL.

I got off the plane and headed towards baggage claim. Along the way I saw two signs that I was really excited about.


This one was outside the Faux-rail.



I grabbed my luggage and went out to meet DF.

Thats it for today. Ill leave you with these questions. Did I find DF easily? What did we do for lunch? And where did we go first?

Welcome! Thanks for joining! When I was in High School my spring vacation was in late April and we didn't have to deal with the crowds so dealing with them this time around dealing with the crowds was so different.
